Amerijet announces Rickenbacker International Airport at new key air cargo hub

By: | at 03:32 PM | Air Cargo  

Amerijet International, Inc. announced its selection of Rickenbacker International Airport as one of its key air cargo hubs connecting eleven cities within the U.S.

Amerijet continues to spread its wings and has signed a long-term lease agreement with the Rickenbacker airport for a 20,000 square foot facility, including five loading dock doors, located at 2566 Jerrie Mock Ave, Columbus, Ohio 43217. Service from Rickenbacker starts on July 7 with dedicated B767 wide body freighter service for intercontinental and domestic freight coast to coast.

Amerijet’s Pamela Rollins, Sr. V.P. Business Development said, “Amerijet’s dedicated B767 freighter service will provide our customers with additional options for expedited and heavyweight domestic freight. We believe this product fills the need for select services once the mainstay of companies such as Burlington Air Express, Kitty Hawk, Emery and other all cargo carriers who did not survive the economic turmoil of the last decade. Our new freighter service is ideal for shipments moving on long-haul lanes over 1,500 miles, especially those in need of time-critical and high-value, temperature controlled or hazardous material shipments.”

“This exciting new coast-to-coast freight service will benefit both businesses and consumers that count on efficient and cost-effective supply chain solutions,” said Elaine Roberts, President & CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, which operates Rickenbacker International Airport. “Rickenbacker is well-equipped and perfectly positioned to meet Amerijet’s needs as a key hub for this service and we look forward to building a strong, successful partnership with them.”
